In the hottest season afteroon, I come home, turn the air-con on.

When the room get cool down, I prepare Gao-shan tea. It is Wu long cha, comes from mountain area in southern Taiwan. Tea leaf looks like tiny ball. When it meets with 80 degree water, it blooms into green leaf, extending pure fregrance.

With toy-like tiny pot, I make tea like ritural. With toy-like tiny cup, I drink up one cup in one sip. Smooth tea running down though the throat. Feel tea fregrance in exhale.

Make tea again. Then one more sip. Exhale.

Make tea again. Then one more sip. Exhale.

Thirst and hotness walk away. In cool shade everything is quiet and calm.
